    DescriptionNow in its ninth edition, the Oxford Handbook of Clinical Medicine continues to be the definitive pocket-friendly guide to medicine. The culmination over 25 years of experience at the bedside and in the community, this handbook is packed with practical advice, wit, and wisdom. The Oxford Handbook of Clinical Medicine presents clinical information in a clear way that makes it easy to revise, remember, and implement on the ward. It gives reliable advice on what to do, when to do it, and how to do it, with clinical photographs and diagrams that bring theory to life. Uniquely for a medical text, this book weaves history, literature, art, and philosophy into its survey of medicine, casting new light on the specialties and encouraging the reader to see beyond the practical aspects of medicine and adopt a patient-centred approach to care. The Oxford Handbook of Clinical Medicine looks better than ever, with a more modern design and over 600 colour images and illustrations. The History and Examination chapter has been completely revamped with systematic flowcharts and new illustrations so that it better reflects real bedside practice. The index, cross-references, and references have been overhauled to make them even easier to use. Every chapter has been written with supervision from experts in each field to ensure accuracy, and updated to reflect relevant guidelines from the NHS, NICE, the Resuscitation Council and other key professional bodies. Loved and trusted by generations of doctors, the Oxford Handbook of Clinical Medicine continues to be an indispensable companion for the practice of modern medicine.

    Review quote
    This is a valuable handbook that is well worth the investment. Doody's Notes Review from previous edition Review from previous edition Now in its sixth edition, the 'Cheese & Onion' (as it is known) continues to be the most popular handbook for both the undergraduate and the junior doctor on the wards... The reason this little book remains so popular is that most topics are covered succinctly on a two-page spread of the book, and coloured headings break up the text and provide a logical structure for readers of all levels. Not only has the Oxford Handbook of Clinical Medicine aided in the diagnosis and treatment of countless patients, it has also helped thousands of students prepare and pass examinations. Size isn't everything, and that certainly is true here. Common clinical questions are answered clearly and extensively, while weird and wonderful conditions, which are rarely encountered, also get a good crack at the whip. They say the proof is in the pudding, and the fact that this book has sold more than a million copies worldwide speaks volumes This handbook goes from strength to strength...[staying] abreast of the breathtaking advances in clinical practice...it can take rough handling and is ideal for junior hospital doctors, medical students and GPs...it's packed with practical, easy-to-read advice... it is a huge topic and a bold task to cover it in such a small portable volume but...it manages this admirably well...packed with facts, knowledge and...is an intensely practical book. If you are stuck on what to do next in managing a patients, this is the book...there is no padding here...[it is a very modern, relevant and highly readable format...superb value for money. Dr Harry Brown December 2004 This is one of the most useful books you can own if you are involved in the day-to-day management of patients and conditions... Get it! Now! Imperial College of Medicine Gazette November 2004 If you want to understand how doctors are taught to think - how so many, how most of them do think - read the Oxford Handbook of Clinical Medicine. It's oddly and deeply moving Now in its eighth edition, it still bulges in the pockets or on the iPhone of every scared house doctor on his or her first night on the ward, giving comfort and reassurance. Not just about what to do or how to do it, but about human compassion. The Week, July 2012 This is a very useful reference book which answers a direct question that a clinician has about general medicine, usually with a patient in mind...the book has to be readable, straight to the point, no waffling, up to date and comprehensive. That is a big ask for a handbook smaller in size than the BNF and roughly the same thickness. Yet astonishingly, it measures up to all these demands and more. It is an excellent reference source, ideal for the desktop for a GP or outpatient clinic and is reasonably mobile. Its layout lends itself very easily to be quickly dipped in; information extracted and move on to deal with the patient and solve their problem. The language is accessible, scholarly yet easy to read and practical and the scope of coverage is amazing, considering the size of the book. This book remains the gold standard for a fantastic handbook of medicine and remains like its predecessors, truly outstanding. Highly recommended. Univadis All medical students should own an OHCM...the best tutor you'll ever have. Oxford Medical School Gazette ...a truly indispensable medical gem. Occupational Medicine ...it has not lost any of its fantastic attributes and still remains a top class book...The language is accessible, scholarly yet easy to read and practical and the scope of coverage is amazing, considering the size of the book. Dr Harry Brown This handbook is one I wish I were able to author. It is clearly one of the best with its accurate and comprehensive fund of knowledge and its emphasis on the human aspect, written by compassionate educators. I highly recommend it to all clinicians on both sides of the Atlantic. Vincent F Carr Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences ...well formatted and beautifully presented...what impresses me most...is the attention given arguably to the most agonising and difficult matters in medicine. These are ethical and philosophical ideals...a truly indispensable medical gem. Every doctor should have ready access to this small volume. The Society of Occupational Medicine Even the latest resuscitation coun-cil guidelines made it into this edition, which is impressive seeing as most medical texts are already out of date by the time they are published. What I really love about the OHCM is the intermittent sections of in-telligent prose, reminding us that medicine is not just black and white (or maybe cheese and on-ion). These give us new perspectives on tricky or mundane topics, with inspiration gleaned from disciplines such as mythology, art, poetry, cosmology and philosophy. These sections supplement our education and encourage us to become more holistic in our clinical reasoning, and is quite unique within the general medical text-book market.
